I guess some Americans are addicted to Arcana Heart series and decided to make their own. Its a good thing actually.

I can't wait to see American version of Strike Witches if there is any...

Actually, Alex Ahad came up with the idea for Skullgirls in the 90s, well before Arcana Heart existed, but it wasn't until he met Mike Z a few years ago that proper development of the game actually started up.

Yeah, that is basically the best character select screen ever. It's just a mockup right now, but I can't wait to see it in action. I'm just wondering if the assist select is going to be in the same box as the team size select.

I think I'd get the game just for this character alone, lol. The puns are purrfect.

nom nom nom nom nom.


Side note heard that there have been complaints about sexism (panty shots, boobs) in this game (from males oddly enough). But they hilariously disappear when they find out the characters are designed/animated by a female who delights in making them that way. I dunno how people would have the time to even look at panties and the like with all the action going on. TBH I didn't even notice any fan service stuff, I had to watch the videos and specifically focus on looking for that stuff to even notice it. The game just looks like it'll be a good bit of humorous distraction with some unique and interesting characters and designs artwork. Since it'll be on XBLA and PSN it probably won't be all that expensive either... wonder if it'll eventually come to iOS.

Okey maybe complaining about panty shots I can understand as acceptable stupidity, but boobs? Seriously? God forbid female characters have boobs!

Yeah, I know I lol'd especially considering its guys complaining.

Quote:
Still, that hasn't stopped some people from getting offended. Earlier this year at Gamescon in Germany, one fan stopped Bartholow just to tell him how sexist he thought the game was. According to Bartholow, however, the complaint stopped as soon as he explained that a woman had done the animation.

"I'm like, did you know our lead animator is a woman?" he retold. "Then, he's like, that's amazing. It's like I gave him the excuse to think it was okay all of a sudden, or to admit he liked it, which really amused me and seemed emblematic of the entire situation around that."

Bartholow puts a lot of stock in the fact that a woman, not a man, was the one who handled the animations. "She intentionally lavishes attention on the breasts herself because she thinks it's cool," he explained. "All the people who seem bothered by it are guys. It's a weird chivalry intent thing that's sort of misplaced and maybe shallow, even, because they see breasts and panty flashes and they go, that's sexist, but I've yet to meet a woman who has complained about it. They're over-thinking it."
I'm thinking she lavishes attention on the boobs because she's sick to death of bad 'jiggle physics'. I did find Valantine's bio funny with one of her dislikes being 'a sore back' when she has the largest bust of the cast.

Like the character. But more interesting to me is that they seem to have improved the backgrounds. Things like on heavy hits trees shaking and more elements added in, from what I can tell. It's nice to know it's shaping up nicely.

Valentine does look interesting, Curious to see what the other characters.. stage 3 was it, super animations are. Peakcocks stage 5, I assume that what it was, at the end of the 3rd video was pretty hilarious.

It does sound as though they are going to make the game somewhat accessible and not require controller breaking combos.

Wish it would hurry up and get released though.

Double Revealed

So the final character (apart from DLC) is a shape-shifting eldritch abomination. A unique "Mirror" character whose moves include moves that other characters were originally going to have, but were cut.

Double Gameplay Guide: Part 1 & Part 2
MikeZ (Double) VS Redner (Valentine/Filia)

Oh man, her Level 5 is one of the most amazing things I have ever seen. I'm not at all disappointed in this 'mimic' character, I have to say. Although, it is kind of hard to watch her at times, since her body shape changes so rapidly so often, it kind of plays with my eyes.

Reminder SkullGirls comes out tuesday on PSN and Wednesday on XBL. 14.99 and will include a demo. Demo details:
Quote:
Of course, for any lingering skeptics and fence-sitters, we’ve prepared a great trial version to highlight Skullgirls’ real, honest fighting.

The trial version features:
Two Characters, Filia and Cerebella
An abbreviated Arcade Mode, with three AI battles
Local versus play, limited to duo teams
Four tutorials
Practice Room

All in all, the trial should let you get a feel for Skullgirls’ fundamentals, experience the power and gameplay depth of two characters and get a taste of the single player content, all while leaving you wanting more.
No super version will be made, they are just now starting on the DLC characters but don't know how many will be made. All patches are free. Avatars coming down the line also.
